— Along with rule changes, there will also be some custom changes. While most MVAC schools are known for silence when it comes to players shooting free throws, CVAC schools are known for keeping the fan noise up when opposing players go to the line.

Several CVAC schools also have two sites for games. In Division II, Ticonderoga plays modified games at the Ticonderoga Middle School starting at 5:30 p.m., with junior varsity games also starting at 5:30 p.m. at the high school, followed by the varsity contest. In Moriah, all games are held in the same building, with modified games played in the elementary school gym at 5:30 p.m. and junior varsity and varsity games played in the high school gym, also starting at 5:30 p.m.

All other Division II games played at a single site start with modified competitions at 4:30 p.m., followed by the junior varsity and varsity games. Games involving Seton Catholic and Elizabethtown-Lewis will only have modified and varsity games, with first tip set for 5:30 p.m.
